Hi all,

A usefuly enhancement for the gdallocationinfo tool would IMHO be the 
possibility to supply the x y coordinates via standard in, instead on 
the command line. This is very convinient for using it in pipes.


coords.txt contains:
1 2
3 4
2 4

cat coords.txt | gdallocationinfo -valonly my_dem.tif

I can provide a patch, if this functionality is interesting.
